Emily Michelle Eivins was born November 18, 1987, in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, the daughter of Roger and Cristy (Stanturf) Queck. Our first sign of her musical talent was evident in her high pitched cry that melted her daddy’s heart. She passed away on Thursday, July 17, 2014, at the Mercy Hospice in Johnston at the age of 26. Emily was baptized on May 28th 1988 at Emmanuel Lutheran Church in Fontanelle, Iowa and accepted Jesus Christ at a young age. Emily was active in our church puppet ministry in Oklahoma and when we moved being confident in her puppetry skills with the help of mom, dad and her brothers started a new team in Iowa teaching others to share the Parables and her love for Christ.
Emily attended elementary school in Oklahoma and Leon, Iowa. She graduated from Nodaway Valley High School in 2006. She achieved Varsity letters in Instrumental music, band, vocal music, cheerleading, drama and various sports. She had worked as a life guard at the Greenfield pool.
